Ropes & Gray has been highly commended in the "Pro-bono Initiative of the Year" category at The Lawyer Awards in recognition of the firm’s collaboration on the Afghan Pro Bono Initiative (APBI), working with Safe Passage International, Refugee Legal Support and thirteen other law firms.

The APBI was launched in March 2022 to offer pro bono representation to Afghan refugees seeking legal advice and support following the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan in 2021. The APBI helps reunite refugees with their family in the UK and access the Afghan Relocation and Assistance Policy scheme (ARAP).

The award was judged by a panel of senior peers from across the bar, private practice and in-house.
